CALMAC, FORREST AWARD RIVALS

0

CELTIC double-act of Callum McGregor and James Forrest are rivals for this PFA Player of the Year award.

The Scotland international pair have been two of the champions’ most consistent performers in what could well turn out to be a historic season.

McGregor has been immense in his midfield role and did a fabulous job when he stepped into Scott Brown’s anchorman position when the skipper was injured.

Forrest has taken the eye, too, and has scored some crucial goals including the opener in the recent 3-0 Scottish Cup semi-final triumph over Aberdeen and the late winner against Steven Gerrard’s men at Parkhead.

McGregor’s hits double tops in Celtic’s Roll of Honour last week when he clinched both Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year awards.

He has played over 60 games for club and country in a tireless campaign – having scored six for the champions, and assisted in 13 goals so far.

Forrest, who has claimed five international strikes, has also surpassed the 60-game mark for Celtic and Scotland, having netted 17 domestic goals and provided 20 assists since August last year.

Ryan Christie’s wondergoal against Hearts at Murrayfield is also among PFA Scotland’s Goal of the Season shortlist.

Controversial Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos and the Govan side’s on-loan winger Ryan Kent are also nominees for the PFA Player of the Year award.

The winner will be announced on Sunday, May 5, at PFA Scotland’s annual Awards Dinner at the Hilton Hotel, Glasgow.
